* ImmortalityHurts: Rhulad from ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' doesn't bear physical scars from his deaths, but every time he gets resurrected by his sword, his psyche breaks more and more. The results in ''Literature/ReapersGale'' are noticed by several people around him and it is utterly pitiful.

**** [[spoiler:The Ten/Eleven transition is dramatic and explosive because Ten was forcibly holding the process back for quite some time. This incarnation was also notable for fear of death/regeneration, probably stemming from the fact that he only lived six (or nine, depends on whom you ask) in-universe years in that body.]]

* In the Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality series first novel "On a Pale Horse", if Death does not collect an assigned soul at its time, the person cannot die. But they remain in agony until their soul is taken. His first client had her neck broken from a shard of glass, but was in intense pain until Death took her soul from her body.
** Death can also partially pull a soul out of anyone has an attack. He can do this to another Incarnation, but their nature anchors the soul to prevent it form getting completely pulled out. In both cases, it is excruciating.

* In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure part II: Battle Tendency'', [[BigBad Cars]] succeeds in his plan to combine the [[NinetyPercentOfYourBrain potential-unlocking]] abilities of a [[MaskOfPower Stone Mask]] with the [[AmplifierArtifact Red Stone of Aja]], removing his weakness to sunlight and evolving him into an unkillable ultimate being. He was beaten when Joseph desperately held out the Red Stone, amplifying Cars' [[KiAttacks Ripple powers]], inducing the volcano they were standing on to erupt violently enough to blast Cars into space. Drifting through the cosmos, [[AndIMustScream unable to breathe or alter his course]], he eventually stopped thinking at all.

* One horror comic a mysterious stranger convinces a man to let him give him immortality only for the man to decide he doesn't want it and returns to the man seeking to be restored to mortality. Instead he's run through a device that converts him into a liquid form and put into a sturdy pressurized metal container where he's constantly regenerating only to die from being crushed and suffocated to death in an endless cycle and he's aware throughout every second of it and will be trapped like that for ages.

** Jeebs looks a little worse for wear in the [[[Film/MenInBlackII second film]], though. WordOfGod is that not all parts grow back the same. In the animated series, Jeebs's brother shows up at one point and reveals that, in his family, blasting each other pretty much means "Hello", although it's usually Jeebs who gets blasted.

* ''Series/TheXFiles'': In ''Tithonus'' (inspired by the Greek myth of a man who asked for eternal life but [[AgeWithoutYouth forgot about eternal youth]]) the immortal character suffers from the constant misery of being alone, changing his identity periodically so no one will know his secret and wishing only to die. He once tried to look up what had become of his wife, but found he [[FogOfAges couldn't even remember her name after so long]]. [[spoiler: In the end he finally gets his wish and is killed. It's implied that his immortality is transferred to Scully.]]
